About Spontaneous Sherlock

Spontaneous Sherlock - Scotland's hottest improv comedy show, and one of the biggest improvised comedy show of the last three Edinburgh Fringe Festivals - is celebrating it's 100th show!

Spontaneous Sherlock is an award-winning, entirely improvised Sherlock Holmes comedy play, based on an audience suggestion of a title. Performed in two halves by three of Scotland's most critically-acclaimed comedy improvisers, with live Victorian musical accompaniment.

Plus, stick around after the second interval for a bonus improv comedy set by the cast of Spontaneous Sherlock in their ordinary, non-Victorian clothes! Performed by Will Naameh, Paul Connolly and Sam Irving. Music improvised by Jenny Laahs and Colin Bramwell (piano), Nick Lauener (piano/violin) and Graham Coe (cello).
